Why We Love Taylor University’s Annual ‘Silent Night’ Game
In my opinion it's the greatest tradition in college sports. Taylor University's Silent Night game occurs each season at about this time -- the Friday home game before semester finals. This will be the 18th annual, and if it's anything like the 2013 version, it's worth keeping an eye out for it.
The highlights were on ESPN last year, and why not? When Aquaman, Gumby and pajama-clad coeds can come together in peace, harmony and sports, there is yet hope for the world.
Taylor University is a Christian school in Upland, IN. The rules here are simple: Dress like it's Halloween, pack the gym and remain silent until Taylor scores its 10th point. Then erupt in cheers and storm the court.
It's creative without being mean, unique because of all the preparation and cooperation, and it usually includes multiple Mr. Spocks.
Here are highlights of the 2012 festivities:
